Meyers has also garnered five additional Emmy nominations for his work as a writer on SNL and the 2011 special "The Real Women of SNL."
As the sole "Weekend Update" anchor, Meyers charms audiences as he lampoons top news stories and entertains fan favorite guests including the outlandish and über trendy correspondent "Stefon" as well as "Drunk Uncle." Before focusing his attention solely on "Update," Meyers was a regular player in sketches, performing numerous characters.
A graduate of Northwestern University, he studied and performed at ImprovOlympic, where many SNL cast members and writers have gotten their start, before moving on to the Boom Chicago Theater in Amsterdam, Holland. His acclaimed show "Pick-ups and Hiccups" with partner Jill Benjamin toured Europe, eventually catching the eye of "SNL."
